Handmade exclusive calligraphy by Hokama Tetsuhiro Sensei.
Matsubayashi-Ryū (松林流), is a style of Okinawan karate founded in 1947 by Shōshin Nagamine (1907–1997).
__ Nagamine named his style in honor of the two most important masters that his teachings were based upon: Sōkon Matsumura of Shuri-te, and Kosaku Matsumora of Tomari-te. He chose to name the school using the first kanji characters from both master's names Matsu (松) and the style is pronounced in Japanese "Matsubayashi".
Matsubayashi-ryū is one of the better-documented traditional karate styles, owing to Nagamine's book, "The Essence of Okinawan Karate-dō" as well as "Tales of Okinawa's Great Masters."
Hokama Tetsuhiro is a 10th degree Okinawan fighting arts teacher, noted historical scholar and author, and accomplished artist in Shodo, japanese style calligraphy. His art is commissioned and sought out for display in dojos, homes and public installations.
